A little blowdown after Mowich lake, we easily passed. Ample camping with most on the trail being day hikers. More mosquitoes than sand on the beach. Nice 3 day trip with the 7 and 9 year old and the lake was warm enough for swimming.

Just uploaded a video of this hike on my YouTube channel “Oregon water wonders” if anyone is interested This was my 3rd time to these falls, they are definitely beautiful. But losing some steam as mid summer is coming. Today there was definitely a bunch of people on the trails. And the trail to these falls are not marked, so if you don’t have gps or all trails open just look for a trail that leads to the right after taking the trail to the right at the fork, after passing lake Ann. The trail down to the falls do get pretty steep but totally worth the work. If your bringing your dog like I do everywhere there two pretty hard spots for them to have to get back up. Not so much a problem going down though, but definitely be aware and be cautious of that. And you will see those spots in my video. Happy waterfalling, and get out there before the water becomes a trickle :)

Quite the climb. Slippery, steep hard pack dirt the last 1.5 miles or so. Definitely need to scramble over large downed logs. It was a great challenge with beautiful views.

Great hike to do during covid. Not many people and there’s plenty of space to keep distance while passing. Great views of the surrounding mountains and of Big Lake. There are a couple fire rings near Patjen Lake if you want to backpack in. Lots of beautiful flowers and buzzing bees!

Pretty hike but not a good hiking trail due to the high mountain biking traffic.

Hike is relatively easy until you start the actual climb. Trail to the cave is easy to find now that a fire has gone through the area

BEAUTIFUL hike. Did a one nighter on July 4th. No snow on trail. Quite a few camping spots along the lake. Lots of mosquitos/ bring bug spray or something! We dropped our stuff and did a day hike to Duffy lake, mowich lake and red butte. Highly recommend red butte if you have time - views of Jefferson, sisters, and 3 fingered jack!

I have been here a couple times now- the sound of the running water makes up for the traffic you can hear in spots- But I can’t believe no one mentioned the size of some of the trees that start not long after you pass the 1 mile marker- - You have to stop and admire the width of some of the trunks - and the height - impressive - Plan on some mud-

This trail was a joy to hike! The trail follows the river the entire way and allows for a great distraction to make the trail go by quickly. We were on the trail by 8:30 am. The trail definitely got busier on our way back to the cars. We paired this trail with the sahalie falls and the proxy falls loop for the perfect day.

Recommend 100x over! This trail was one of my favorites. We hiked the trail on July 7. It is quite rocky at the beginning and there were quite a few people on the trail in the afternoon. There are signs for the upper and lower falls that venture a little ways off the loop, but do not miss these! We found the lower falls even more remarkable than the upper ones. Enjoy!

Hiked on July 7. We arrived in the afternoon and parking was scarce. This trail was quite heavily trafficked, but the waterfalls are beautiful! It is definitely worth the time!

Off trail

Great views but very difficult to find the path to the cave. I would definitely encourage hiking boots as the trail was quite muddy. I was also surprised to find that Google Maps took us on at least 7 miles of a very rough gravel road. We ended up ditching our car a mile and a half and walked up the road to the trailhead because we were in a car.

I absolutely loved this trail. There are a ton of spots for pictures and just to admire the scenery.
